    I'll believe that when I see it. When you factor in the need for, not just adequate, but huge profits, your theory will get blown away. I've watched the degradation of the private sector go from "me first" to "take the money and run".

    I liked Biden's f-bomb, anybody else see it? That guy just can't edit his inner voice.

    It makes me like Biden a little more.

    Anyway, as for these court cases.. don't they realize they're just wasting money?

    He's a riot. I know he's a politician and probably not to be trusted, but that sort of thing makes him seem a little more human.

    EDIT: ^^^ Might end up being a waste, but the court money seemed to work out pretty well for them in 2000. Nothing would surprise me at this point.

    You do remember the court incident in 2000 right? Where they basically stole the presidency via the Supreme Court? I'm telling ya, in this crazy world anything is possible.

    My states attorney general Ken Cuccinelli is suing and there have been a lot of lawyers coming out of the works saying that it's all politics.

    Holy shit!! Have you guys heard the voice mail Stupak has received? Rachael Maddow played some of them on her show.

    Stay classy America!

    There have also been attacks on Democrats offices and homes. Tea Party folks posted an address supposedly of Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA), which wasn't correct (it was his brother's address), and someone cut gas line of their propane tank.

    The level of conservative tactics for whipping up irrational anger is nothing less than incitement to riot.

    Its not the whole bill, just those two provisions, one being the student loan thing. The actual health care bill is law now, so eh, the GOP is being a big loser.

    Really? Really now? The student loan thing should be the least controversial part of the bill. I understand the GOP has a hard on for privatizing our government but when it actually makes things more expensive it's kind of counter-intuitive.

    That shouldn't faze the Republicans. The largest deficits we've ever run up, have all been under Republican control. Saving money has never been their priority, no matter what ideas they give lip-service to. ;)

    Incendiary link. audio interview portion will be up later tonight, evidently.

    That would be pretty funny. I just heard the recording on the news and it's definitely one pissed off black dude.
